The Georgia Tech Research Institute's Robotics and Autonomous Systems Division is looking for two candidates, one experienced with robotics vision and perception and another in multi-robot systems, planning, and control. Join our growing robotics division, which conducts everything from basic to applied research in robotics. This opportunity is within the Aerospace, Transportation and Advanced Systems Lab ( ATAS ). ATAS conducts research for government and industry customers in aerodynamics, radar, food processing technology, unmanned systems and modeling of social systems.



ROBOTICS PERCEPTION RESEARCHER POSITION SUMMARY:



Responsibilities may include development of real-time perception algorithms for robotics applications, including visual odometry/SLAM, object detection and tracking, semantic mapping, 3D/point cloud processing for navigation and obstacle avoidance, and fusion of multiple sensors for these tasks.



The position will involve research, development of algorithms, fast prototyping, programming, generation of research reports, publications, proposals, and briefs to customers, requiring excellent written and verbal communication skills.



REQUIREMENTS THAT MUST BE MET TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS POSITION:



- US Citizenship AND/ OR the ability to get a security clearance

- MS or PhD in computer science, robotics, Electrical Computer Engineer, or related fields specializing in perception for robotics.

- have extensive, demonstrated C/C++ programming skills, and have a strong mathematical foundation and problem-solving skills.

- hands-on experience with state-of-the-art perception algorithms on robotic systems

- Experience with fast prototyping in MATLAB and/or python as well as experience in deploying these algorithms for real-time operation on a robot in real world environments is a plus.

- Proven research experience in at least ONE of these areas is desirable:

* Visual odometry and SLAM,

* Object detection & tracking in images or point clouds,

* Multi-sensor fusion, and

* Machine learning for robotic perception (especially deep learning).
